“Out of adversity springs opportunity. That is how Pro Bono Economics began.” – Andy Haldane, Co-Founder, Pro Bono Economics and Chief Economist, Bank of England.
To mark this, our 10th Anniversary year, Pro Bono Economics has today published a new brochure, which explores the origins of the charity through the words of our co-founders and Chair, as well as containing details of our approach and some of the most important publications across 2018 and beyond.
“The first ten years of Pro Bono Economics can be seen as testing whether (a) economists do in fact want to volunteer; and (b) charities can benefit from their skills. Thankfully, the answer to both questions is yes.” – Martin Brookes, Co-Founder, Pro Bono Economics and Founder, Brookes Impact Partnership.
The brochure presents key statistics on impact measurement in the charity sector, explaining how Pro Bono Economics works to help charities understand and improve their impact and value.
“Just as individuals can now reflect upon vast quantities of data to make improvements in their own lives, so too should charities” – Lord Gus O’Donnell, Chair of Trustees, Pro Bono Economics.
Two case studies are also included – one from Sinem Cakir, previous CEO of MAC-UK, and another with Pro Bono Economics volunteer Dr Allan Little – to shine a light on how engaging with the charity has delivered valuable experiences for the range of partners with whom we collaborate.
This brochure serves as an opportunity not only to highlight our work – past and present – but also to thank the enormous number of people without whose support these achievements would not have been possible.
